The Contemporary Law Forum is a student run, professionally supported blog established with the primary objective of promoting and publishing quality legal research on contemporary issues of law.
Background to the Series
The Editorial Board invites submissions for the TCLF Blog Series on “Law, Ethics and Governance: Exploring Legal Implications of the Technological Revolution”. Technology Law synergizes two previously antipodal fields – law and science.
This synergy is reflective of the foundations of the Technological Revolution responsible for the exponential progress in every aspect of society. However, as scientists and technology professionals create newer, faster and more efficient ways of living, lawyers must constantly evolve themselves to question how such disruptive technology will impact society, identify challenges and eventually provide solutions.
The global pandemic has ushered in a new era of interaction between technology and the law, beyond that of the past decade and one that spans almost all jurisdictions around the world. This is not limited to just online workstations, but forms the cornerstone of judicial activities, policing, media, State control, education and the economy. Developments in technology law thus raise questions that concern constitutional, commercial, intellectual property, competition and
banking law, as well as litigation and dispute resolution.
Accordingly, this blog series seeks to evaluate the legal and policy repercussions of the Technological Revolution within the global order.
